British, US And Polish Jet Fighter Aircraft Rain For Combat Over Poland

NATO say that exercises like this are now "more relevant than ever following the illegal Russian invasion of Ukraine, increasing NATO interoperability and readiness".

Elsewhere, four Royal Air Force Typhoon fighters landed at Mihail Kogălniceanu Air Base in the Southeast of Romania to support NATO’s enhanced Air Policing in the South.

"The RAF deployment, called Operation Biloxi by the UK military, will see the Typhoons forming a crucial part of the existing reinforcement of NATO’s posture across eastern Europe; they are joining an Italian Typhoon detachment that has been in Romania since December 2021."

"The Allied mission provides a unique opportunity to improve the UK’s interoperability with regional Allies whilst part of a multinational combat capable force operating alongside Romanian and other Allied aircraft in the region."

The present deployment is the fourth time that the RAF has deployed to Romania to undertake NATO enhanced Air Policing. Previous deployments were in 2017, 2018 and 2021.
